I've always regretted we didn't get lights installed on the east side of the house. I don't know how that happened but it did and to do it now is difficult and much more costly. Last week I think I found an easy solution.

These little LED lights are solar powered and throw a considerable amount of light.

They use a lithium battery and have 8 tiny LED lights to illuminate the area. That little white ball contains the motion sensor which acts like a switch turning them on when anyone passes. You can set them to come on under three different conditions; a) High Light mode, b) Dim Light mode, c) Sensor mode, the one I use.

The installation was very simple. I removed a screw from a steel panel and ran the screw through the light housing and then back through the steel panel. Can you see the two lights in the picture above?

So now our driveway is well illuminated and we can safely and easily load or unload the car at night.

You can find these lights on under MPOW solar motion sensor lights.

I'll report again on them after 6 months or if issues appear sooner.

Safe travels and thanks for stopping by.
